Researchers have uncovered a nearly 100-year-old home movie of a baseball game in south Georgia, a piece of film they say may represent the earliest moving images of the sport in the state. The 26-second film clip captured the employees of the Pebble Hill Plantation near Thomasville playing ball. The footage appears to have been shot around 1919, based on photographs of Pebble Hill teams and other films on the reel, University of Georgia archives experts say. The Pebble Hill athletes are playing a team from Chinquapin Plantation, researchers said.
